Going Dotty is an easy to stitch embroidery design from the Kristin Nicholas Farmhouse Collection. Stitched in wool thread, this pillow design will make your sofa or bed feel happy go lucky cheerful. The bright colored polka dots remind me of summer sundresses, ice tea, circus tents and lazy summer days.
The polka dot design is made with only two stitches - Spider Web and Outline Stitch. This is a perfect first embroidery project if you are a beginner. It is also a great design for kids just learning to stitch.
